We know that we have passed from death to life because we love one another. Whoever does not love abides in death. All who hate a brother or sister or sibling are murderers, and you know that murderers don’t have eternal life abiding in them. We know love by this, that he laid down his life for us—and we ought to lay down our lives for the one anot…
 
Then the word of the Lord came to him, saying, “Go now to Zarephath, which belongs to Sidon, and live there, for I have commanded a widow there to feed you.” So he set out and went to Zarephath. When he came to the gate of the town, a widow was there gathering sticks; he called to her and said, “Bring me a little water in a vessel, so that I may dr…
 
When they came to the place that is called The Skull, they crucified Jesus there with the criminals, one on his right and one on his left.

When some were speaking about the temple, how it was adorned with beautiful stones and gifts dedicated to God, he said, “As for these things that you see, the days will come when not one stone will be left upon another; all will be thrown down.” They asked him, “Teacher, when will this be, and what will be the sign that this is about to take place?…
 
Death is but a transition of one life to the next. As followers of the Resurrected One, we hold true in our faith that those who have passed away are received into God’s eternal loving embrace. Jesus tells us that God is the God of the living and not of the dead (Mark 12:27 and Luke 20:38). By those words of Jesus, we know that our dearly departed …
 
Now listen to me. I will give you counsel, and God be with you! You should represent the people before God and bring their cases to God. Teach them the statutes and instructions and make known to them the way they are to go and the things they are to do. You should also look for able men among all the people, men who fear God, are trustworthy, and …
 
The mind of one who has understanding seeks knowledge, but the mouths of fools feed on folly. The ear that heeds wholesome admonition will lodge among the wise. Those who ignore instruction despise themselves, but those who heed admonition gain understanding. Scripture Reading 1 John 15:14, 31-32 (NRSV) Awe came upon everyone because many wonders a…
 
This was John’s testimony when the Jewish leaders sent priests and Temple assistants from Jerusalem to ask John, “Who are you?” He came right out and said, “I am not the Messiah.” “Well then, who are you?” they asked. “Are you Elijah?” “No,” he replied. “Are you the Prophet we are expecting?” “No.” “Then who are you? We need an answer for those who…
 
It is pure invention that pope, bishops, priests and monks are to be called the “spiritual estate;” princes, lords, artisans, and farmers the “temporal estate.” On the contrary, all Christians are truly of the “spiritual estate,” and there is among them no difference at all but that of office. There is no true, basic difference between laymen and p…
 
But godliness with contentment is great gain, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content. But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires [...] Read More... The post Nagbigay Ka Na Ba …
 
“Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock.

Now all the tax collectors and sinners were coming near to listen to him.

An expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he said, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?” He said to him, “What is written in the law? What do you read there?” He answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your [...] Read More...

Humiliation and dehumanizing ARE NOT accountability or social justice tools, they’re emotional off-loading at best, emotional indulgence at worst. And if our faith asks us to find the face of God in everyone we meet, that should include politicians, media, and strangers in Twitter with whom we most violently disagree. When we desecrate their divini…
 
Six days later, Jesus took with him Peter and James and his brother John and led them up a high mountain, by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, and his face shone like the sun, and his clothes became bright as light. Suddenly there appeared to them Moses and Elijah, talking with him. Then Peter said to [...] Read More... The post Be T…
 
We’re going to need to intentionally be with people who are different from us. We’re going to have to sign up, join, take a seat at the table. We’re going to have to learn how to listen.

Theologians, writers, poets, and musicians have always used the wilderness as a metaphor, to represent everything from a vast and dangerous environment where we are forced to navigate difficult trials to a refuge of nature and beauty where we seek space for contemplation.
